KeyBank Grants $500,000 to Connecticut Foodshare

KeyBank ranked No. 18 on The Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.

 

The KeyBank Foundation has granted $500,000 to Connecticut Foodshare, payable over three years. The funding will help Connecticut Foodshare support its Mobile Pantry, which distributes food to those in need.

“Our mobile pantry program serves thousands of households per month with nutritious food including sought after items like produce. We are extremely grateful to our friends from KeyBank for supporting this vital resource to so many families in our state,” said Jason Jakubowski, President and CEO of Connecticut Foodshare.

Mobile Pantry helps those who don’t live in close proximity to a supermarket or food pantry or who lack the needed mobility to access these services. In 2022, the program distributed 4.9 million pounds of food and served an average of 17,718 food-insecure households per month.

“KeyBank is committed to partnering with community organizations whose mission it is to improve the lives of underserved populations and neighborhoods where we do business,” said Matthew Hummel, KeyBank Connecticut and Western Massachusetts Market President. “Connecticut Foodshare works tirelessly to fight hunger across the state, and we are proud to support their Mobile Pantry program to help reach all residents who struggle with food insecurity.”
